# The net force on a current loop in a uniform magnetic field is zero. But what...

The net force on a current loop in a uniform magnetic field is zero. But what if B?  is not uniform? The figure (Figure 1) shows a square loop of wire that lies in the xy-plane. The loop has corners at (0,0),(0,L),(L,0), and (L,L) and carries a constant current I in the clockwise direction. The magnetic field has no x-component but has both y- and z-components: B? =(B0z/L)j^+(B0y/L)k^, where B0 is a positive constant.

Part G

Find the magnitude of the force on side 4, that runs from (L,0) to (0,0).
